Feel the Bern
I came to Patti Smith through her book Just Kids which was recommended to me by a friend. It ended up being one of my favorite books of the year. It was just my type of story; leaving a small town for the city, the bohemian lifestyle, and New York in the 60s. Oh, I’m sure it wasn’t so glamorous. It’s definitely romanticizing what had to be some tough shit at the time. But that’s what makes it so enticing.
Her life has been so interesting and exciting; meeting all those amazing people in New York in the 60s and 70s, her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe, and her devotion to her development as an artist. I’m looking forward to reading her new book M Train and learning more about this fascinating person.
Just a sketch of my
sweet baby angel dumb cat. I got a new sketchbook and am trying to commit to making a drawing per day in it. I was inspired bythe output of all the amazing artists I follow on Twitter. So I did a little experimenting with a new brush pen and some colored pencils. Digging the high saturation look at the moment.
